About Me

My photo
I have spent a great deal of my life battling illness. I suffered from Crohn's Disease and eventually had abdominal surgery, thwarting the Crohn's and budding cancer cells. Since my surgery in 1995 I have been relatively free from Crohns', although I had several subsequent surgeries related to my ileostomy..When my disease was in remission, I don't think my husband realized how bad it could get, but he has stood by me. I also have suffered from various autoimmune disorders and am diagnosed with Stage IV Kidney Disease. Fortunately, I am maintaining and do not need dialysis at this point. We adopted our son and later found out he had cerebral palsy, so he became my career. Dan has had two surgeries and tons of therapy and is able to walk because of it. He is a college graduate and is employed as an Information Specialist. We are very proud of his accomplishements. I am now part of the retired generation and still getting used to the idea. I do enjoy crafting, traveling and being with family and friends. I am active in my church and feel that the hardships we endure are there to build our faith. I like to live life in the "now" as we never know how much time is left.

Better to Wear Black Pumps

Last week I put my foot in my mouth several times.  First of all, I posted on Facebook that my job can get hairy.  Guess I can't do that and I've been warned.  My job is nothing less than perfect...LOL

Secondly, I hurt my best friend's feelings, which was not my intention, but thanks to the written word, there was misunderstanding and also too much was said.  All is forgiven and lesson learned.  I hope.

Sunday we picked up Mom from the health care center.  Watched a movie, "Dolphin Tale," which is just a delightful story of how this dolphin overcame it's handicap.  It includes alot of life lessons in it.  We also had pizza which Mom was hungry for.  Yum! 

Poor Mom.  She is so upset.  We got rid of several of her things when we thought she was going to die.  After all, none of us had room to store EVERYTHING.   Who would think their 92 year old mother who had been suffering from pneumonia would want her tan pumps?  Her black ones will have to do.  It is frustrating every time that she asks for something we didn't keep.  She doesn't remember that we were told she was going to die.  I told her the doctors has her dead and burried.  Better that she proved everyone wrong and has to wear black pumps.
